Has anynone got news on the two cyclists who were involved in an accident on Hendrik Potgieter yesterday at approx 6pm. We drove past and saw two bicycles lying messed up on the side of the road. There was also a big firebrigade on the scene.

Hendrik Potgieter is a no go area at the moment, especially since they have changed the yellow line. Duathlete2007-02-27 10:45:24

What do you mean they changed the yellow line? It used to be quite wide the last time I rode down there, but that was at least last November.

Not anymore, they built a few more shopping centres, made it two lanes where it used to be one and now there is no more yello lane in a lot of the places. Used to be a nice pleasant ride. Nowadays also if you go past the krugersdoorp pretoria highway on hendrik potgieter it is South Africa's autobaan. Don't go down that way on a sunday morning anymore. Otherwise you have a car every 10 seconds coming past you at a very high speed.

Yes, I know, that stretch down to the T junction at the bottom of the Sterkfontein climb, cars and motorbikes really go flat box along there!

It's worth the R10 to go to Kyalami and not worry about this, but then again, I am a new amatuer cyclist who still falls over at robots cause I sometimes can't clip out in time

Rant start.

 

Nothing against shifter, but why the HELL are all articles, etc in newspapers, magazines, internet, etc, etc ALWAYS referring to color?  Is this not just "blowing the apartheid fires"?  Sjeez, white man drags black worker behind bakkie or black thugs attack white farmer.  GET OVER IT, stop talking about color guys!!!!

 

OK, rant over.
